Families Belong Together March: Who marched today and where?

If this is already a Thread, I will gladly delete if you can point me to said thread.

We were in DC today and I was astounded at the turnout, Sounds like 30-50K -- and I am REALLY cool with that as I am seeing that it looks like the march was millions over the country and the world. It was REALLY hot here in DC and people still showed up -- TONS of preteens and teens with their parents. I talked to a few parents and they told me that it was their kids that wanted to be there.

Many kids insisted on parents showing up.

Did you or a friend march today? Let's share it together!

(Side note, here in DC, there was a trump policy rally -- I was told by a DC Police officer 1600 signed up. They were supposed to march the other way the Families Belong Together March was heading on Pennsylvania Avenue. They are silly people.)

My fave part of the day was being a part of the protesters who surrounded the Department of Justice building.
